Singapore Changi Airport’s newest terminal, Terminal 4, will start receiving commercial flights on 31 October, after a series of successful trials.
The first airlines due to move to Terminal 4 are Air Asia, Cathay Pacific, Cebu Pacific, Korean Air, Spring Airlines and Vietnam Airlines.
“The past months have been a very crucial period for us as we conducted intensive tests and trials, not only to ensure that the systems work well, but also to understand how passengers navigate the new terminal,” Changi Airport Group EVP Tan Lye Teck said.
“We have identified areas of improvement following those trials. We will take the next few weeks to complete the last set of trials as we prepare for the commencement of operations at T4.”
Changi Airport is the world's sixth busiest airport for international traffic, with 58.7m passengers passing through the airport last year. Terminal 4 will add capacity of 16m passengers a year, taking the airport’s total handling capacity to 82m passengers annually.
Changi Airport Group is already working on plans for a fifth terminal, due to open in the mid-2020s. When completed, Terminal 5 will add handling capacity of an additional 50m passengers per year making it larger than all other terminals combined.
